Roses are red poems anyone?

Here's two:

Roses are red,
Violets are indeterminate.
If you're gonna drink mescal,
Look out for the worm in it.


Roses are red,
Violets are purple.
Waffles and pancakes
Taste better with surple.

Extra points for the "aaaargh" factor.

Roses are red
Violence is redder
I'm thinking of choking
my muse more deader

Roses are redder
Violets are blest
Carnations are better
But you are the best!

Lady Rose blushed red,
Sir Violet turned blue,
Caught together in bed,
For shame, tis true.

Roses are red,
But they could've been blue,
Who knows?
We might've been too!


We are each of us angels with only one wing. And we can only fly by embracing each other.

Roses are black
Violets are blue
Both the colors
of what you can do

Roses spill red
Violets spit blue
if you don't take your meds
there is no help for you

Roses radiate red
violets pulse blue
gentle pull, vibrant color
warmth engulfs both me and you

meh...I'm sorry...

Roses are red
And violets are shrinking
Humilityís fine
At least thatís what Iím thinking.

Because

Roses are red
But have thorns that get stuck in
While Violets are blue
But are kinder when plucking.

( I'm glad my spellcheck picked up on that last line otherwise I'd have been in trouble).

Roses are red
I can't get a life.
Violet ran off
With my best friends wife.

Roses get read,
Violets get humbled;
That's just the way
The old cookie crumbled.

Surely it's after 5 PM somewhere...

Best, Jim

Roses are red
but they make my nose runny
It's hard to make an allergy
sound even a tiny bit funny.

Most roses are red
inside they're just black.
Just like a rose,
this world's gone quack.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
If red
Your night melody
Then blue
Your morning mood

But neither
Have clue

Roses were red
my violets are lost
Snow will soon be
bringing the frost.

Roses are red
sometimes they are white
with green from the stem
in the heart of array
petals of purity
holding each other up
Roses are red
but not buttercups.

Pink demitasse
with yellow rays love
of butter or not?
Wild growing clusters
dot highways in spring.
Roses are red.
And their petals curling

edge sepia amber
to black crumbling
as they fall from their stems
sans ceremony.

Roses are red.
Violets aren't blue.
Violets are...violet,
and that is the truth.

Poetry begs us to color them blue.
But purple is harder to rhyme so we do
take license of subtleties pondering hues--
Roses are yellow and pink and and red too.

Roses are Red (challenge)

Most Roses are red
But color is just a hue
Kinda makes you wonder
Why we donít call them blue

Roses can be pink
Violets can be violet
And flowers are just flowers
That happen to be quiet

Roses are black
This seems to be strange
But thatís what they are
Thereís nothing to blame

Roses are white
And their hues seem to change
But it nice to have
Flowers to rearrange

Some rare roses are purple
But nothing rhymes with that
So we just donít use the word
Purple in poetry we lack

Roses are yellow
And violets need sun
And hey what díya know
This poem is done

"I have no other but a woman's reason:
I think him so, because I think him so."

Paper is white
I left you for dead

Roses are roses
they petal like you
gambling hearts
holding one spade of deuce.

Roses are poetry.
I want to write them.
Like loop-de-loop stiches
in gather of hem.

Roses are everything--
japanese fans,
unfurling their witchery
entrancing man.

Roses are magic
and ephemeral.
Roses, the last thing
you smell that is her.

Roses enchant me.
Roses are red.
Roses are metaphors
for love of life's dread.

--with love,

from dottie

Roses are red
and they're sold by the bunch
but send her an orchid
for a bigger punch !
.

.
.
Roses are red
or so I've been told
forget all the flowers
and just buy me gold  
.
.
.
.
Roses are red
and they smell, oh, so sweet
but it takes more than flowers
to knock me off my feet  
.
.
.
.
Roses are red
yes, and flowers are fine
but the way to spell romance
is with candles and wine




I am nothing special...and my name will soon be forgotten,but I've loved another with all my heart and soul,and to me,this has always been enough.~N.S

What a terrific challenge!
~ and I loved yours

Here is my contribution

Some roses are scarlet
Some violets are pink
Being surrounded by flowers
Beats seeing a shrink!



~ Flowers, anyone?

Hey, this reminded me of a poem I wrote for a friend at work named Von, who was a physical Therapist.  It started with a twist on the "Roses are Red" thing ...  Just a couple of notes: "TEDS" are anti-embolic stockings used to prevent unwanted clots, and Physical Therapists use long canvas belts to help lift patients.  


Von's Introduction to his Patients


Roses are red and Violets are blue

Hoses are TEDs and knees violently blue.
Iíll pump that sore leg and Iíll strain your back too.
Iíll add to your grief when your pains arenít few.

Nice to meet you.  Iím Von and I work with PT.
If you see me approaching, itís better to flee.
But if pain is your favorite sensation, call me.

I specialize greatly in making things smart.
Iíve refined and perfected this cruelty to art.
Youíll wonder of me, ďDoes this beast have a heartĒ?

I will cause you to hobble and wobble and reel,
inflicting my hurts from your head to your heel.
No, Iíll never let up, though you groan shriek and squeel.

And when I enter your room 8 A.M. to awake,
Donít whine that youíre ďninetyĒ expecting a break.
Though the chart says youíre ancient,  itís probably a fake.

And so what, if you clutch me and strain as you trip,
telling me how they have carved your poor hip.
Watch me.  Iím cracking my long canvas whip.

Please donít wonder  ďOh what have I done to deserve...Ē
Iíll treat you like any ďMark SpitzĒ I might serve.
To think I would let up for you, youíve got nerve!

Never think I dislike you.  All patients of mine
from the vigorous down to the dead walk this line.
Just remember these things and weíll get along fine!

Roses are red
and violets of blue
are enjoyed when you're dead
but not by you.

Roses are red
and so is your face
you zipped up your fly
in a speedy pace

many folks say
violets are blue
oh how you wished
you weren't in the womens loo

if only they would have told you
it was the womens bathroom
so many guys wear skirts now a days
you were right to assume

stupid pictures of stick people
placed on the door
you cant really tell
who's who anymore!


BTW great poems everyone i loved them made me howl with laughter.. well only if they were supposed to be funny. if they were sweet and serious i was more calm and relaxed. good job!
